You are so right! I use one of two booga bags as my purse...I just switch them out as I feel like it. People cannot believe that it's one of my knit projects.

This weekend, one of my daughter's soccer teammates asked me about my purse, and when I told her I made it, she asked me to make her something. She wants a pair of socks. I was working on a sock at the game, and that's how she decided what she wants. I told her there were two rules...1) No being sarcastic, and 2) She had to genuinely want a pair. She marches to the beat of a different drummer (or else she has just extremely good taste). She assured me that she was sincere. Guess this is the one time my dh won't complain about me buying yarn! My daughter is somewhat shocked.

Anyhow, back to the topic of your thread (sorry I kind of hijacked it)...

With the warm weather on its way, you wear that top proudly! You'll be a walking billboard for hip knitting!

The women in my family--aunts, cousins, mom, sister, Nanie (grandma)--we all love to make things. Maybe they switched her at the hospital.

Your set is gorgeous. Great job!

oo-la-la! I don't normally like tube tops, but those cables are gorgeous. That is a very nice set and I think it would look good either for dress up or casual wear.

You look good in everything you model, and the tube top is no exception. Very nice!

(Yes, yes, I'm jealous, sitting here eating my liver because my once sveldt figure went the way of mini skirts and 8-tracks!)
